TBBS: Future Directions
Phil Becker and Bob Hartman, eSoft
August 17-21 1994
Phil Becker and Bob Hartman of eSoft present information about upcoming features and changes to ESoft's flagship product, TBBS. This talk primarily consists of Becker describing features and goals of the upcoming versions of TBBS to an audience of TBBS customers, with the assistance of his head of engineering, Bob Hartman.
Contextually, this talk came at a time that the pull of the Internet became stronger and stronger, and Becker would put more and more effort into the IPAD Internet product, which would prove to be a smart move in some aspects but cause a large amount of bad feelings within the TBBS customer base, who saw the change in priorities as "abandoning" TBBS in favor of a flashy new fad. The resulting growth of the Internet has borne out the choice Becker made from 1995 onward.
